Mr. Bloom is very passionate about his subject and ALWAYS has outside information which I find supplementary to the lesson. He may have his bad days but he always does what a teacher should- he teaches. Bloom gets me to think and I find that when I go in for extra help, he is always willing to hear what I have to say and help me to understand things better.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. He's one of the only two teachers I've ever had who has been so passionate about the subject they teach that I've actually been motivated to care. Mr. Bloom is a fantastic teacher and is one of my favorites by far and probably will be one of the few for the rest of my life.

He is a great teacher when he is in class. He can be sarcastic and not very connected to the class but he teaches well. That is all I care about.

Bloom is smart; he knows the material and cares about it. He can be overly sarcastic and doesn't really establish postive relationships with students, he's just there to teach. If you act like a hothead or dont work, he will eat you. Assignments and grading policy our unclear, just keep it real and dont give any bull.

bloom is a great guy. he is sharp, knows his stuff, and a really smart teacher. However, he needs to lighten up, and stop acting all disappointed when the kids dont like the material, or arent interested in trying hard. he needs to stop expecting honors behaviour out of a regents class, and he would be golden. hes really cool, but a lot of people dont like him because he is intimidating and sometimes a little rude

As soon as he thinks he hates you you're done for the rest of your high school career. And he makes snap judgements about people.

Amazingly unclear, class time is wasted by aimless, unanswerable discussion questions. Assignments are nebulous. He loves ranting at the class and letting them feel every bad mood he has. Doesn't teach, just tells stories.

I like a lot of my teachers, but Mr. Bloom is my favorite. His teaching style is professorial, but don't gripe about it - embrace it. Ask questions, express your opinion, and DO THE WORK. You'll do well.

Mr. Bloom is incredibly lazy, doesn't teach very well, and is way too moody to be a good teacher.

You have got to be kidding, bloom was by far the most fun teacher I had in High School. I had him for US History, and Public Policy 101. Be on his good side.
